Nettles are one the first lush medicines available in the forest during spring time. They are most commonly found amongst the cow parsnip near trickles of water and in moist forest environments. They grow between 4,000 and 10,000 feet. It is best to harvest from middle of May to middle of July in rocky mountain ecosystems. They sting, so watch out!
